Book Review: Idiot

Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!

Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot.

With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

FIVE STARS and if I could give this book more… I would. I have been a HUGE fan of Laura for years now. Since the first time I saw a Pamela Pumpkin video my friends and I have “upped to Jesus.” So when I saw this title available for review.. I knew I absolutely had to request it. 

It is so easy to get into the mindset that these “internet celebs” just got lucky, but Laura makes her journey known in Idiot and she holds absolutely nothing back. She is hilariously raw and real. 

Even though she is more known for her comedic snapchat induced characters, Clery is incredibly sweet, ernest, and charming through every page. I hope everyone will do their part in ‘helping Helen smash’ and buy this book. It is utterly fantastic.
